    Can I run this amazing monitor with my MacBook Pro?

    Exactly! Nothing against Best Buy but it kind of bothers me that they were the ones to survive over the years as they were easily the weakest of the bunch when it came to actual product knowledge. In a previous life I worked for a computer retailer called Compu-Add which suffered a similar...

    Can I run this amazing monitor with my MacBook Pro?

    I can vouch for that statement as well. I have a Samsung TV which was under warranty at the time. I tried moving it to access the rear and inadvertently damaged the coax connector. Samsung said they would cover it over the phone but when I arrived at their repair facility [50 mile drive for...

    Looks awesome, Ron. I buy from Micro Center all the time. They're a solid company with knowledgeable employees. You're in good hands. I'm usually not a fan of extended warranties but this purchase might have been an exception, even for me. CONGRATS!!!

    Can I run this amazing monitor with my MacBook Pro?

    Semi-seriously I guess. On the one hand it's a sweet looking piece of hardware. On the other hand I don't really have a use case for it and I spend the vast majority of my "me" time in my theater, which can always benefit from a cash infusion.

    Quite the contrary. I'm trying to talk myself INTO it!

    Can I run this amazing monitor with my MacBook Pro?

    Ron! You're a guy after my own heart as I too simply love technology and am always looking for the best out there for my environment. Before I continue I should mention that I am not a MAC guy and have only limited knowledge of their products. That said, aside from the obvious compatibility...
